Right here goes, my pc is connected via wire to a Belkin ADSL Modem with High-Speed Mode G Router. Perfect connection no problems there, I have a laptop that connects wireless that has no troubles again perfect connection no dip in speeds etc..

I purchased a new laptop today i tried to connect via wireless, it has problems connecting! When it does eventually connect, the speed drops pages wont load and it eventually stops working. Its really annoying me and i cant think whats affecting it!

any ideas?

i had the same problem on my desktop that i use wireless. Do you have a ethernet port or anything that your not using?
if so i disabled mine and everything seems to be working fine now. so i would try that and see if it helps.

no not if its having a problem. I was having the same problem you are having, and when i disabled it, everything worked fine.
to do so click on start my network places and then view network connections and then on the network connection for your ethernet port right click and click disable.
